Has anyone gotten a lexmark printer to work with opensuse? I have a 6150 and can’t seem to find drivers for it.
Your Lexmark type is not in HCL/Printers - openSUSE, but nevertheless you my have a look there. Maybe there is a type similar as yours in the list and it may give you a hint.
for printer support in linux, this community resource
OpenPrinting database - All Lexmark Printers is the best site to look;
if one looks at the Lexmark page, it has a specific page on your printer:
it says to go to the lexmark site, and download the Z55 driver for your printer;
however when I try this out, I find the Z55 is not made since 2003; so no driver;
soooooooooo … you are going to have to hunt around for yourself; some would suggest that lexmark and linux go together like : a fish and a bicycle; some would suggest getting a compatible MFC device; I sense HP is the most easy to install; Epson and Canon need a little bit of work but with careful research on the right model, are tame-able
but try Google to pursue your lexmark voyage; search on linux printer drivers etc
seem like they come in compressed format tar.gz and if you find them you again google on how to decompress and install; or ask the forum;
let us know how you get along;
Although in Lexmark’s defense, their laser printers work fine with Linux. Their inkjet models are problematic c***.
how is it going along out there 6tr6tr?
I see an older website with instructions
you would have to take a punt as to whether this printer resembles yours;
I am now getting this website as source for lexmark:
you don’t mention your country of origin; so you may be able to find a linux driver for a model number close to yours
Thanks for the info!
I apologize but I haven’t had the chance to try this stuff out. i’ll try to get to it this weekend and let everyone know what i find out. Thanks again!
Nothing seems to work here.
Z53, etc drivers
5000 series drivers
Looked on openprinting.org
Nothing seems to work.
